Rapid Serial Visual Presentation

The RSVP Training Program

Rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) is an innovative approach to improving one of the cognitive processes associated with reading fingerspelled words, the rapid processing of serially presented visual information. The sequencing of the RSVP study set allows signers to develop skills incrementally.

What is the RSVP Training Program?

The RSVP training program consists of sequences of letters from the printed Roman alphabet that are flashed successively onscreen at approximately twice the speed of a fingerspelled word. This speed has been experimentally determined to be beneficial to learning fingerspelled word recognition skills.

The training program is designed to be used after reading the RSVP book, and before studying the video word lists and monologues. Before starting the training, read the full description of how this program works here.
